Because like you, we’re dedicated to changing attitudes and changing lives.

About us: We are passionate about helping vulnerable people to reach their full potential. We strive for a fairer society where vulnerable people find stability, the most excluded are included, and where homelessness and poverty are things of the past.

The role: You will ensure that Porchlight properties are places that people who have been homeless can call home.

You will carry out regular checks of our properties, making sure they are maintained to a good standard, communal areas are clean and tidy, and that health & safety and fire regulations are adhered to.

Other responsibilities will include helping manage occupancy agreements, overseeing move-ins and move-outs, arrears management, ensuring databases are kept up-to-date and other administrative duties.

  • Good communication and people skills
  • The ability to build constructive relationships
  • Excellent organisational skills and the ability to record information accurately
  • Willingness to learn new skills
  • A full driving licence and access to a car (subject to the provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and Equality Act 2010).


As a Porchlight employee, you will have access to a wide range of benefits including free life insurance, 25 days holiday per year (increasing to 30 days after five years’ service) and the Porchlight pension scheme.

We will also help you study towards qualifications in housing law, housing management, compliance and legislation in health & safety.
